git-annex addurl - add urls to annex
git annex addurl
Downloads each url to its own file, which is added to the annex.
quvi is installed, urls are automatically tested to see if they
point to a video hosting site, and the video is downloaded instead.
Urls to torrent files (including magnet links) will cause the content of
the torrent to be downloaded, using
Normally the filename is based on the full url, so will look like "www.example.com_dir_subdir_bigfile". In some cases, addurl is able to come up with a better filename based on other information. Options can also be used to get better filenames.
Avoid immediately downloading the url. The url is still checked (via HEAD) to verify that it exists, and to get its size if possible.
Avoid storing the size of the url's content, and accept whatever content is there at a future point. (Implies
Prevent special handling of urls by quvi, bittorrent, and other special remotes. This will for example, make addurl download the .torrent file and not the contents it points to.
Use with a filename that does not yet exist to add a new file with the specified name and the content downloaded from the url.
If the file already exists, addurl will record that it can be downloaded from the specified url(s).
Rather than basing the filename on the whole url, this causes a path to be constructed, starting at the specified depth within the path of the url.
For example, adding the url http://www.example.com/dir/subdir/bigfile with
--pathdepth=1will use "dir/subdir/bigfile", while
--pathdepth=3will use "bigfile".
It can also be negative;
--pathdepth=-2will use the last two parts of the url.
Use to adjust the filenames that are created by addurl. For example,
--suffix=.mp3can be used to add an extension to the file.
Enables parallel downloads when multiple urls are being added. For example:
Enables batch mode, in which lines containing urls to add are read from stdin.
When batch mode is enabled, makes it parse lines of the form: "$url $file"
That adds the specified url to the specified file, downloading its content if the file does not yet exist; the same as
git annex addurl $url --file $file
Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
Include progress objects in JSON output.
If annex.largefiles is configured, and does not match a file,
addurl will add the non-large file directly to the git repository,
instead of to the annex. However, this is not done when --fast or --relaxed
